Plainfield sets 2014 flu shot dates

'Tis the season...

Plainfield Health Officer Denise Proctor has scheduled three free flu clinics for Plainfield residents for the 2014 flu season.

The CDC recommends that annual flu shots be gotten at the beginning of the flu season each year -- ideally during October -- and the Plainfield program is right on target.

Who should get flu shots? There are vaccines available for every age from childhood on up. But two groups that should not get the shots are pregnant women and those who have allergic reactions either to the shots themselves or to egg-related products.

Here's the schedule for Plainfield's 2014 flu shot program --
October 9 (Thursday)
City Hall Annex - First Floor
510 Watchung Avenue
6:00 - 8:00PM

October 10 (Friday)
St. Mary's Church
West 6th & Liberty Streets
6:00 - 8:00 PM

October 22 (Wednesday)
Senior Citizen Center
400 East Front Street
10:30 AM - 12:30 PM
The program is free and on a walk-in basis, with no reservations needed.

For more information, call the Plainfield Division of Health at (908) 753-3092
